Our friends, Joe and Gena have two daughters about a year younger than Abby. We met them at our adoption play group and the girls always have a lot of fun when they get together.
So, on Monday, we got up at dark-thirty and met up with our friends for the four hour drive to Pennsylvania. When we finally arrived, we were all ready to have some fun!
Going up! Sarah had fun on this ride while everyone was loading, but as soon as it started going, she was scared and wanted to jump off. Several times around, I shielded her eyes with my hands and tried to help her not to look. It seemed to help. And everyone thought she was my little daredevil.
Funny story: while Abby was getting her face painted (the last one), Sarah was outside playing with a little girl who was waiting to get hers done. I was inside the little booth watching Abby when I heard the loud wails of the little girl and a lady say, “She tackled my daughter!” I ran outside to see the mom hovering over her crying daughter and Sarah just staring at them both. I apologized profusely and thankfully the mom was gracious. I think what happened is that the girl ran away a few steps and Sarah went to get her. Oops!
I found out later that Billy had seen the whole thing but Joe said, “Let the Mom’s handle this one!” and so he stayed put.
We went to one show – a circus with several different acts: clown, quick-change artist, trained dogs, and acrobats. We didn’t stop riding rides long enough to see any others.
We stayed until the park was closing. It was a fun day made even more special to share with friends.
